Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery in La Cieneguita, Mexico
We are happy to announce the next Opening at the Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery in La Cieneguita, near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. All are encouraged to attend The Good The Bad and The Visionary featuring new works by Joseph Arthur, Spencer Tunick and Anado McLauchlin on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at 1pm. Brooklyn based Joseph Arthur, a musician and a painter brings a worldly lyrical vision to his work, which captures the poetic shorthand of the magician and translates the secrets of color and line to define archetypal visage and intent. Joseph will be collaborating with Photographer and Artist Spencer Tunick in a collection of nudes gleaned from a rooftop in Brooklyn and at the Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery in Mexico. Anado McLauchlin is a North American Artist living in Mexico. Seven years ago, Anado began adding the Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery Complex to his existing 2.5 acre compound 5 kilometers from San Miguel de Allende. The Gallery features not only Mr. McLauchlin’s assemblages, but also his jewelry, furnishings and mosaic work. Mr. McLauchlin continues to celebrate the “everyday” with his playful gumbo of a vision. Be prepared for some surprises along with some installations and a video collaboration with Julio Carlos Ramos Zapata of Mexico City. Mojiganga and Paper Mâché Artists, Hermes Arroyo and Cindi Olsman will have a large combustible Paper Mâché Effigy that will truly amaze. The Hierbabuena Cocina Gourmet Food Truck will be on site with their delicious fare. The Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery warmly invites you for an afternoon of revelry and mirth. The previous openings at the Gallery have been more than a presentation of splendid work but a celebration of surprise and Visionary wonder. There is something new around every corner…discovery and delicious provocation…
From Centro Historico in San Miguel de Allende. Taxis to the Gallery are recommended. Tell the driver that you wish to go to La Cieneguita. Take Canal Street and head down the hill. Follow Canal through the Glorita (Traffic Circle) and head straight to the parking lot of the Train Station. Cut a left diagonal across the parking lot and cross the railroad tracks.
Follow the asphalt road that initially curves to the right for 5km...when you see the signs for Guanajuato and Atotonilco..be aware... and 100 meters past that set of signs is a small sign on the right that says Casa de Las Ranas......go right there...the small lane comes to a “T”… on your right you will see a sign for Balneario Las Grutas de Guadalupe...follow that sign….The Gallery is directly across the street from the Balneario…….Happy Trails!
